Our Daily Bread - Sneek Peek

Isn't this cross beautiful? This Our Daily Bread Designs set is called the Cross of Christ and it was expertly designed by our very own design team member Dina Kowal! Talk about talent!!! This set of stamps will be available for purchase as of July 15th :) When I first saw this set, the cross reminded me of a filigree necklace that I wore years ago. If you know me, you know that I LOVE filigree!

For the center image, I stamped the cross with mellow moss and then using my stamp-a-majig, stamped the scripture on top with versa mark. I embossed it with an aged gold embossing powder to resemble the prism metallic cardstock. - Oh yeah! This stuff is awesome and comes in a variety of metallic colours. Our Daily Bread Bread has added this cardstock to it's line of products and it is beautiful! Thick with fine flecks of gold....mmmm, yummy as jewelry but cheaper!!!! lol - All kidding aside this is really nice card stock and is sturdy enough to make a fabulous card base.

A note - when working with the new Prism line of Metallic Cardstock, please run it through your cuttlebug twice if you are trying to die cut through it! I only had a little piece of this left when I decieded to make the corner adornments. I ran it through my cuttlebug once and it didn't quite cut through all the way for the details - thus having to used my corner adornments without all the peices poked through!! lol

This is truly amazing, Kim!! I love all your extra touches, stitching, sponging, embossing.... They add so much to the overall richness, all while enhancing that beautiful cross. I love the corners, too! Didn't realize they were die-cut from the metallic paper, to thanks for that bit of info especially!
